AM25FEDIEA en la HAM RADIO 2017

FEDI-EA - Sat, 22/07/2017 - 17:00

Festejar los 25 años de la Federación Digital EA en el EURAO Boulevard de Friedrichshafen ha sido toda una expe­rien­cia, agradable y muy tonificante, llena de buenos recuerdos y de nuevos proyectos. Como rejuvenecer, pero con toda la veteranía.

Tener un stand allí ha sido la excusa perfecta para, más que mostrar todo nuestro bagaje, que es mucho, tener la opor­tu­ni­dad de aprender, de escuchar, de recibir todos los inputs de esas amistades forjadas a base de años y de debates, con tranquilidad, sin aglo­me­ra­cio­nes, de forma personalizada. En definitiva, disfrutar de un largo fin de semana de radioafición internacional.
